Numbers Don’t Lie: the most important stat to consider before the North London Derby

Four-thousand, nine-hundred and sixty-three daysThree-thousand, two-hundred and eighty-three days We all know which one is the biggest number, yet we constantly hear about the smallest one, which is the number of days our infamous trophy-drought lasted. Countless articles were written about our inability to win trophies during the nine-year, 512-game streak that went from the […]

Dear England: love Saka all you like, but hands off – he’s ours!

To the shock of absolutely nobody, I didn’t want England to win the Euros. I make no apologies for it. It’s how football works. When Arsenal went out of the Europa League, I didn’t start supporting Man Utd because they got further. On the contrary, I put pretty much all the energy that was left […]

Form is temporary: why Arteta’s Arsenal underdogs will rise to the occasion (NLD Preview)

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Arsenal – PL preview   Tottenham Hotspur irk me. Their white shirts and blue shorts. Their logo of a chicken standing on a ball. Their motto “To Dare Is To Do” when they’re seldom ever daring or doing. The fact they took their name from a 15th-century English warrior – Henry Hotspur. […]

The North London Stadium Derby – how Spurs may struggle in Arsenal’s footsteps

Arsenal and Tottenham – Stadium comparisons/issues   Arsenal and Spurs, with the opening of Tottenham’s new ground, will have some inevitable comparisons in their grounds’ financing and operations.

Aubameyang Should be In The running For The Golden Boot

One of the final acts of Arsene Wenger’s reign was to sanction the signing of Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and what a decision it immediately proved to be. The Gabon international hit 10 goals and provided 4 assists in 14 games for the Gunners, getting off to a wonderful start at the Emirates. He should […]

Spurs 1-0 AFC

Wenger’s Spineless Chickens bossed by Cockerells – #Spurs1AFC0

If I were a neutral, or a fan of some mid-table PL club, who only casually follows Arsenal by means of checking the results, I would be astonished this morning. How can top-level club, seemingly fighting for the top 4, smash Palace 4-1 and then go down to Swansea inside 10 days? How can that […]

Gunners Thrash Spurs

Five Quick Keys to Doing The Double over the Scum at Wembley in the North London Derby

Upcoming matches against Tottenham conjure up a unique reaction, a simultaneous feeling of overwhelming nausea and excitement. The only thing I feel it is comparable to is first talking to a girl you “like” during your adolescent years–that perfect blend of anxiety shaped by the possibility of enduring both agony and ecstasy. It needs to […]

Media Darlings: diving, cheating, thuggish Spurs can do no wrong

Another incredible weekend of Barclays action just gone, which as usual was short on actual quality but long indeed on drama. I’d like to talk about Spurs if I may. As an Arsenal fan it’s difficult to have an opinion on them without being called biased or one eyed, and that’s often very true, tribalism […]

Power shift? Nonsense. Spurs are Great Pretenders. At best.

Power shift? Only in Poch’s engine transmission, little else… I’m still buzzing over our glorious win vs. that lot. But then this power shift nonsense has made me think. Compared to 10/15 years ago, yes – we and they are pretty much on a keel. On the pitch, at least. Off the pitch, we still […]
